Engineering Data Management

An organization’s engineering documents and drawings are a critical business asset. As a source of competitive advantage, keeping these documents current with the most recent changes and comments is essential. While these documents must be easily accessible to the design and production teams, they also need to be protected from unauthorized users within the organization and from competitors.

Formtek Engineering Data Management (EDM) solutions provide flexible yet secure access to your engineering information. It allows authorized users to quickly search and retrieve the latest document versions, as well as access historical information for reference when making and managing changes. All your documents are stored in a secure multi-level repository.

Formtek has built an Engineering Data Management Solution for Alfresco comprised of three components.

The Formtek EDM Solution facilitates collaboration throughout the engineering and production process. During the design process, your engineering documents can be distributed for review and approval. The markups, comments, and approvals are stored with the documents so all team members can view the transactions.
